THE South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) reckons six months will be enough for them to restore the image of Athletics South Africa.
This will also be enough time for Sascoc to hold elections for a new executive committee for the national athletics body. This according to Sascoc president Gideon Sam, pictured, after their meeting with IAAF president Lamine Diack in Monaco on Tuesday night.
He updated Diack on ASA's ad hoc committee set up at the weekend. Sam, who was accompanied by Sascoc chief executive Tubby Reddy, also briefed the world athletics body's chief about the appointment of Sascoc board member Ray Mali as ASA administrator.
The interim board was elected after Sascoc suspended the Leonard Chuene-led ASA board over its handling of the Caster Semenya gender verification tests.
Diack was informed of the suspension of the board and certain senior staff members, pending the outcome of a disciplinary hearing.
IAAF officials have refused to comment on the Semenya saga, saying they were awaiting the results of medical tests on the University of Pretoria student.
